Croatan Institute, with the Responsible Endowments Coalition and SEIU Capital Stewardship and help from the Initiative for Responsible Investment at Harvard University, released a report titled “Action on Climate: A Practical Guide for Fiduciaries.”
A group of investors has released a new white paper, Investing for Positive Impact on Women: Integrating Gender into Total Portfolio Activation. The paper was prepared by Croatan Institute with the guidance and close collaboration of Global Fund for Women, Root Capital, Thirty Percent Coalition, and Trillium Asset Management.
Using the Total Portfolio Activation framework, the new paper provides a guide for mission-driven investors as they consider how to put their investments to work in support of their own long-term goals to benefit women and girls.
This paper applies the Total Portfolio Activation framework to help mission investors maximize their social and environmental impact across their entire portfolios and to generate positive benefits for women and girls.
This Toolkit is intended to help investors examine climate change from different angles.
Croatan Institute seeks to educate these investors about the wide range of impact opportunities available to them, including in public equity investment.
The initiative aims to develop a standardized reporting system for documenting and evaluating the impact of public equity engagement, to integrate public equity investors in conversations about social and environmental impact investing, and enhance public understanding of the full array of engagement opportunities available to investors in listed equities.
The report, Fixed Income Investing in Climate Solutions: Green Bond Opportunities for Philanthropic Foundations focuses on the growing market for green bonds and their potential role as a component of a fossil-free investment strategy for the increasing numbers of foundations committing to divest from fossil fuels.
Clean Energy Group, Confluence Philanthropy, and Croatan Institute jointly release the first ever study on the role of green bonds in foundation portfolios.
On June 3, Croatan Institute President and Senior Fellow Joshua Humphreys spoke at the USDA’s Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food (KYF2) Task Force meeting.
